Share tables, also known as “sharing tables,” are designated areas within schools where students can place or return whole or unopened food and drinks they do not want. Students who want additional food can enjoy the items during the meal service at no cost. Accordingly, share table programs can help reduce food waste while enabling students from food-insecure households to access healthy foods more easily. Many schools across the country have instituted share tables.
